11 Fixed:
12
13 - Impose deterministic order on cpp-definition options.
14 Heretofore, ExtUtils::CBuilder put cpp-definition options
15 into the cc command line in non-deterministic order. This
16 produced noise when diffing build logs.
17 Make this order deterministic. (RT #124106)

272
273 - Added tests for have_compiler

2800.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
281
282 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
283
2840.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
285
286 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
287 linked. [Jan Dubois]
288
289 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
290 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
291 Urban]
292
293 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
294 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
295

297
2980.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008

303 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
304 [Craig Berry]
305
3060.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
307
308 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
309 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
310
311 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
312 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
313
3140.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
315
316 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
317 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
318 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
319 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
320
321 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
322 ignored. [Robert May]
323
3240.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007

326 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
327 as part of the perl core.
328
329 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
330 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
331
332 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
333 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
334 Steve Peters]
335
3360.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
337
338 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
339 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
340 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
341
342 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
343 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
344
3450.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
346
347 - Various OS/2 fixes:
348 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
349 + Got library-file building working better
350 + Handled libperl_overrides better
351 [Ilya Zakharevich]
352
353 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
354 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
355
356 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
357 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
358
359 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
360 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
361 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
362 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
363
3640.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
365
366 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
367 E. Malmberg]
368
3690.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
370
371 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
372 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
373 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
374 Sims]
375
376 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
377 John E. Malmberg]
378
3790.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
380
381 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
382 Scott-Thoennes]
383
384 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
385 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
386 A. Berry]
387
388 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
389 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
390 Scott-Thoennes]
391
3920.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
393
394 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
395 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
396 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
397 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
398 Zakharevich]
399
400 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
401 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
402
403 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
a9ccbcd7 404 platform-independent way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
71b9be80
DG
405 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
406
4070.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
408
409 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
410 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
411 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
412 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
413 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
414 E. Malmberg]
415
4160.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
417
418 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
419 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
420 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
421
4220.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
423
424 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
425 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
426 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
427 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
428 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
429 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
430 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
431
432 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
433 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
434 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
435 [Curt Tilmes]
436
437 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
438 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
439 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
440
441 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
442 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
443 Scott-Thoennes]
444
4450.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
446
447 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
448 Salzenberg]
449
4500.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
451
452 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
453 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
454 where they're very different.
455
456 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
457 Peter Prymmer]
458
4590.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
460
461 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
462 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
463 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
464 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
465 executables.
466
4670.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
468
469 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
470 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
471
4720.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
473
474 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
475 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
476 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
477 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
478
479 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
480 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
481 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
482 and so on. [Randy Sims]
483
484 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
485 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
486 compile(). [Randy Sims]
487
4880.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
489
490 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
491 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
492 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
493
4940.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
495
496 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
497 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
498 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
499
500 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
501
5020.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
503
504 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
505 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
506 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
507
508
5090.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
510
511 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
512 should be quoted.
513
514 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
515
516
5170.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
518
519 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
520 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
521
522 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
523 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
524 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
525
526
5270.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
528
529 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
530 patching help from Randy Sims.
